little growth of knowledge, low salary, too much politics
System Engineer/TSS/Tech Support (Current Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 18 April 2018
It was a family owned business and publicly traded. But was bought out by another company. The entire family and close friends were holding top positions within the company, and held a lot of shares.
Since they sold all their shares, some at 4-10 times the value, they have no skin in the game.
There are very little incentives for employee growth. They do not facilitate learning. They don't mention it, but really hate it when men take parental leave.
They are making losses. The parent company says they need to cut costs, but they are cutting people from the bottom, while the family in the management are padding the pockets.
It is a drowning ship.
People who have been here dozen years are being laid off.
Project work is slowing down, but the number of people in management are same or increasing.
I hope the CEO of the parent company looks at this review, and atleast takes some stern action to put the company back into shape.
The company has a lot of bright people and a lot of potentials. But a lot of it is getting drowned under the day to day noise.
Long hours, low pay, low benefits, too much politics, no growth
